To say that the horror genre has been kind to AMC would be the understatement of the year. THE WALKING DEAD is pretty much THE most popular show on TV and it doesn’t appear that will be changing anytime soon. As such AMC has decided to try their hand at another horror project.
THE TERROR will be a dramatic adaptation of the 2009 bestseller of the same name written by Dan Simmons. David Kajganich will be prepping it for TV.
No casting or any other news yet but here is what the story is about:
“The Terror” is set in 1847 when the crew of a Royal Naval expedition to find the Arctic’s treacherous Northwest Passage discovers instead a monstrous predator – a cunning and vicious Gothic horror that stalks the ships in a desperate game of survival, the consequences of which could endanger the region and its native people forever. Kajganich executive produces with Scott Free’s David Zucker and Ridley Scott, TV 360′s Scott Lambert and Meghan Lyvers, Milchan and Simmons.
